A man from Caboolture has reported multiple sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects just 2km out from the main town centre.

Josh Philip, from Broadway Court, has claimed that he saw two UFOs, one near his home on January 5 and another on January 30 flying over nearby Toohey Street, News.com.au reported.

Philip said that he decided to speak out in the hope that others may be able to confirm the sightings.

He said that the first sighting was of a bright white light travelling much slower and lower than a normal plane.

"It was so smooth and silent, just gliding through the air," he said.

Philip said that in the second sighting, a similar light was travelling northwest before making a sudden 40-degree turn and then disappearing.

He said that his experience was awesome and he is looking forward to see some more.

However, according to the maps provided by Australia's air traffic controller Airservices, the Caboolture area was a main thoroughfare for aircraft travelling to Caboolture, Redcliffe and Brisbane airports.

A spokeswoman said that Airservices did not routinely log reports of unexplained air traffic activity or strange lights.

Philip, who said the look and movement of the lights he saw were different to normal planes, reported both cases to UFO Research Queensland- a group that logs sightings and holds monthly UFO discussion groups at Kenmore Library, Kenmore.

The group's president, Sheryl Gottschall, said that it was difficult to explain the reports of UFO sighting without other witnesses and photographs. (ANI)
